    What about the crazy Krauts who became lovers despite knowing that they were brother and sister? :eek:

    Story is here.

    I don't know why but I don't find this disturbing at all..and no I don't have a sister, I wish I had a sister though.

    I don't, but if I did and I knew she were my sister, I wouldn't even consider the possibility! I just mean that if I met someone and married her, then subsequently found out we were brother & sister, I think it would be better to continue our lives as a couple, to just try to adapt to the knowledge as one would some other disastrous news without it changing us.

    It's a bit fishy that they only found out after their wedding. Perhaps they already knew and somebody was going to shop them? Not saying it's true, but...

    Remember that woman who found out her husband was also a woman after 18 years of marriage? Still cracks me up :p

    I garantee this thread would have been totally different if the story read:

    "A pair of twins who were separated at birth got a civil partnership without knowing they were sisters.."

    Consensual incest between adults is only a real problem if they have children (and not always even then). Otherwise, it's just prevailing prejudice that creates a stigma. That can change.

    EDIT: To clarify my position - I don't have any objection to it even if the people knew their genetic relationship beforehand, even if they have grown up together, as long as the possible problem with children is avoided. Consensual relationships between other adults are their business, not mine.

    Don't see the big deal tbh, they can still love each other, just not sexually.

    Exactly what I thought reading that story, not saying whether it is right or wrong, but it is a completely different situation to a brother and sister who actually grew up together.

    It's quite sad to think that they have been forced to separate, they probably still see each other as just another person, rather than a sibling.

    Would people be saying the same if it was father/daughter, mother/son, etc?

    I doubt it.

    Interesting point Viper. My first thought to that was "that's different", but ultimately it isn't really, especially since the age gap between some couples is enough for them to be related in that way.
